During Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events, individuals with access and functional needs should reach out to local government for assistance. As a secondary option, individuals can also – through a new pilot program sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) – reach out to local Independent Living Centers (ILCs) for assistance.
If you rely on power to operate life-sustaining medical devices, one of the ILCs listed below may be able to cover the costs associated with accessible transportation to and from PG&E Community Resource Centers. They may also provide funds for hotel expenses, use their offices as charging stations, and provide loaner backup battery power.
